    Hey I got a big problem, I think my tranny is dead...
    I was driving home and at the last stop light before I got there, I started picking up and take-off was really rough it was like my tranny was being eaten from the inside...I continued to drive it around my hood and about half the time My truck worked like it should then the other was like all i had was 3rd gear (no power, like a escort) after about five minutes of this there was no more proper workings it was all bad.
    So now I have good working reverse (that's how I got home) and I think I have third gear

    Is it shot???

    Exactly what mine did when it died... I hope for your sake that it's not it... but I have a feeling it is... [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear it dude.
    Thats how my TH-350 went out in my 72 K/5. The only gear I had left was reverse, and so what the hell I was only a few stoplights away from my house... Man did I get some strange looks at those couple of stoplights... People thinking I was driving backwards for fun or like I was on drugs.
    Glad I didn't see any cops.

    Sorry to say it, but I'd agree it's done, too.
